Paris St-Germain 3-1 Lille

Paris St-Germain celebrate
PSG have scored 51 goals in 17 league games so far

Leaders Paris St-Germain recovered from a first Ligue 1 defeat this season to beat Lille and briefly go 12 points clear.

Unai Emery's side were beaten by Strasbourg last weekend, and lost to Bayern Munich in the Champions League during the week.

Angel di Maria headed in Kylian Mbappe's cross and then set up Javier Pastore for a second. Anwar el Ghazi scored a late consolation, but Mbappe - who had earlier hit the post - added a third in injury time.

Monaco reduced the gap back to nine points later on Saturday, coming from 2-0 down to beat Troyes 3-2 thanks to Guido Carrillo's two goals in the last five minutes.
